Police detained two men, including a man with a “Datuk” title, and seized various items including an air pistol during a roadblock under the Op COVID-19 at the Jawi Toll Plaza early this morning.

The personnel which were conducting checks at the roadblock mounted in conjunction with the Movement Control Order (MCO) stopped a Toyota Vellfire vehicle at about 2am after the duo were caught behaving in a suspicious manner.

They had also failed to provide a valid reason for going outside during the MCO, according to a source.

Checks on the vehicle, which used fake registration numbers also found various tools believed to be used for stealing vehicles.

Meanwhile, Penang police chief Datuk Sahabudin Abd Manan when contacted, confirmed the arrest, saying that the probe into the matter was still ongoing.
